Karachi, July 27, 2018 (PPI-OT): Delegation of Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology called on Caretaker Sports Minister Sindh, Dr. Syed Junaid Ali Shah, at his office and presented him a plan for the construction of sports gymnasium at the SSUET campus.

The SSUET gymnasium is proposed to be furnished with state of the art facilities for indoor games and it will have the courts of tennis, table tennis, badminton, volleyball, basketball, futsal etc.

Appreciating the efforts of the Sports Minister Dr. Syed Junaid Ali Shah for the promotion of sports and development of the sports facilities, Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Muhammad Afzal Haque said that Pakistan has great potential in various fields of sports, but the authorities seem to mostly support only popular sports like cricket and hockey.

He deserves huge appreciation for his commendable work in the restoration of the encroached playgrounds in Sindh.
